Today is Day 3 and I think things are getting better now. I slept much better last night. When I woke up this morning, I was able to stand upright right away (the last two days that had been a struggle for awhile). I am just taking tylenol now for pain. We've taken two walks around the neighbor hood. Unfortunately, Stella can't come yet because I am afraid she will pull and I won't be able to handle that yet. I do look like kind of like a mess. I found that compression on the bruised and swollen areas feels better. But it doesn't look good, I am pretty much wearing a mumu over my exercise leggings. If you are interested in checking out some graphic pictures of my incisions, click here. I like to take pictures often so that I can see that things are getting better even when I feel like it isn't. But I don't want to force those uncomfortable to see them. Right now, I think things are looking worse even though it's feeling better. That seems to be the way things go with bruising though.
I think I was just too impatient the last few days and expected to be feeling fine way too soon.
